Not Chained to A Contract....TracFone

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of TracFone for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Recently, I received my cell phone bill and like everyone else in this world, was shocked by the total at the bottom.  Cell phone contracts are outrageous, especially when you have a few "Smart" phones in the family.  My husband and I have been looking for a cheaper alternative to our ever-rising cell phone bill.  I think I found it. Check out what the everyday Joe says about TracFone. real TracFone customers

TracFone has no contracts, no hidden fees, no activation or cancelation fees.  You pay as you go and can buy the TracFone cards at retailers all over the US. 

Keeping all of us connected during the summer just got easier with TracFone.  You can purchase a variety of minutes.  200 minutes only cost you $30 and even lower plans are available.  That way the whole family can keep in touch.  And with phones costing as little as $9.99, my daughter might even get one.  There is even a plan you can purchase for $19.99 to double your minutes for the lifetime of the phone.  Some phones even come with this feature.  How awesome is that??real TracFone customers

My international calling just got cheaper with TracFone.  I can call internationally for the same price as any other call.  I can call about 60 different countries at no extra cost.  Living a stone's throw from Canada, this plan will help all my international calling needs.

There are so many phones to choose from.  You can go high tech with a "Smart" Phone or keep it simple.  It is all up to you, you have the control.  There are so many features to choose from with your TracFone. so many features You have access to your email, web and news in just a touch of a button. 

I think my mind is made up.  I am sick of the rising cost of my cell phone bill and all the hidden costs.  TracFone is the smart way to go with no panic stricken momma when it comes time to pay the bill.  There is no bill, I already got my minutes and I don't have to worry about any overage fees.  TracFone is making it easier and keeping my budget in the black. real TracFone customers

A Stroll Around the Neighborhood

The kids and I took a walk by the water last night.  It was so beautiful out.  We stopped to take a few pics.

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight." Proverbs 3:5-6.

"By wisdom the Lord laid the earth's foundations, by understanding he set the heavens in place; by his knowledge the deeps were divided, and the clouds let drop the dew." Proverbs 3:19-20.

"Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable-if  anything is excellent or praiseworthy-think about such things."  Philippians 4:8.

I just had to take a pic of Shane's scooter getup :)

Verse on Sunday

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.Philippians 4:7-9

Taking the kids to work...

Yesterday, they were celebrating the 10th Anniversary of the surgery center's (where I work) opening.  They had tours of the OR, free food, bouncy things, face painting and balloon folders.

This is my boss, Julie giving my kids the low down.  This is set up for a knee arthroscopy.  This is where I work everyday.  Pretty cool that the public gets to see the inside of an OR :)

Abbi asking questions?

They had a race car there, so Shane was in his glory.

Trip to the Dentist...

Today 3 of the kiddos went to a new Pediatric Dentist.  This was Brady's first time to the dentist.  I didn't know how she would react to the whole adventure, so I braced myself for a tumultuous time.  To my surprise, she was AWESOME!!

Brady perusing the magazine selection while waiting for the dentist.  Love the ensemble.

Shane first in the chair. He was a little apprehensive, he wanted to go to his old dentist.  But I assured him that this was going to be fun.

Abbi all ready in her chair.

Shane going for a ride,  Whoo hoo.

Donning the appropriate lead apron for the xrays.

Abbi too.

You even get sunglasses at the dentist.  I never got this when I was younger.

Abbi in her shades.

Brady got some too.

She even got a pink princess chair.  She was loving every minute of it.

I could hear Shane from the other room laughing hysterically.  What an awesome dental visit, especially for Shane and Brady. 

And they got to pick out trinkets at the end...even the dentist can be fun.

  I am not his mother but my heart aches and tears are shed.  I see that face, oh how precious, and it BREAKS me!!  That little body, malnourished and sickly, forever leaving a mark in my mind.

What do we do?
What can I do?

"...once our eyes are opened, we can't pretend we don't know what to do. God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows that we know, and holds us responsible to act."

Proverbs 24:12

Thinking, pondering, praying...
